Pledge to be Safe this Summer

During the summer months, the number of accidents and alcohol incidents increase significantly—but you can help prevent that trend from continuing. As part of the the Navy’s “Keep What You’ve Earned” campaign and “Live to Play, Play to Live” summer safety campaign, we’re asking Sailors to pledge to drink responsibly this summer to be safe, stay on track with your career, and keep what you’ve earned.

Take the pledge!

The Navy wants you to enjoy this summer with friends and family, but remember to be safe if you choose to drink. NADAP suggests the following tips on how to drink responsibly this summer:

  • If you’re hosting a BBQ, provide plenty of food and alcohol-free drinks. Make sure all of your guests have a way to get home safely before they start drinking.
  • Remember that warmer weather and more sun dehydrate the body more rapidly. If you’re drinking alcohol, alternate every drink with a glass of water. 
  • Don’t drink and swim (or boat). According to the World Health Organization, alcohol consumption is one of the most frequently reported contributory factors associated with drowning. 
  • Don’t drink and drive. The rate of alcohol-related traffic fatalities increase significantly from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
